Journal Entry 1 by wingSandyPAwing from Palmyra, Pennsylvania USA on Monday, February 26, 2024
Friends rave about this series on GoodReads. It’s been on my TBR for years now so finally ready to visit Colorado.

29 February 2024 Update: Thankful for this read. Simplistic and clear, this is a Plain Song. Kent Haruf’s writing reminds me of John Steinbeck. I see him compared with Chekhov, with Hemingway… simply beautiful without drama and emotion.

“Ambitious, but never seeming so, Kent Haruf reveals a whole community… From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace - a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the book surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground.” - From the Citation for the National Book Award Nomination

“In depicting the stalwart courage of decent, troubled people going on with their lives, Haruf’s quietly eloquent account illumines the possibility of grace.” -Publishers Weekly

I wish I could write reviews like this.
